Reactivated AAUP Chapter at Penn State

By Angela Hewett

Pennsylvania State University faculty members have activated a long-dormant AAUP chapter, largely in response to new campus health-care policies imposed by the administration. “Take Care of Your Health” forces Penn State employees to submit to mass-organized blood tests and biometric screenings. The imposition of these new policies raises serious questions about effective governance consultation with faculty and other constituencies on campus. More than two thousand people have signed a petition protesting the new policies, and a rally against the policies was held in September.
